Guys little help with new iPad air games?

Ok guys I just got my iPad air yesterday and need some iPad games. I was looking for fun, engrossing, addictive type of games. Something that I can get lost in and keeps me wanting to play. I was thinking of Shadowrun Returns or Xcomm as those would be good choices. Should I get Shadowrun now and maybe wait for a sale on Xcomm? Any other suggestions are welcome too, I have the latest ones like Epoch 2 and Oceanhorn already.

Ravensword Shadowlands looks and plays superb on my iPad Air
So much smoother frame rate than my iPad 3.
Worth a gamble if that's your type of game or a revisit if you already own it

Dead space looks and plays superb as does Real Racing 3 that benefits from a faster smoother frame rate as any racer would do. Need for Speed Mosted Wanted is excellent as well

Can't help with either as I have not bought either to be honest. I'm surprised my Air has put a pleasent new lease of life back into games I bought but never really got stuck into.

Hopefully while I'm enjoying the revisits, the games you mention and more get some 64 bit love and the extra power is put to good use in terms of gameplay and eye candy

I would say go with Xcom. It offers a lot more and is significantly longer.

Not just to be contradictory, maybe a little, I'd go with Shadowrun.
Really though, I wouldn't expect a sale on Shadowrun and there will be another on Xcom. If that influences you.
I'd suggest watching some youtube videos and figuring out which you'd rather be playing. I prefer Shadowrun. You... ?

If you like Xcom, get Call of Duty Strike Team too, it is dual mode and fun.

I kind of agree if there might be another sale on Xcom then I should wait for that and maybe try Shadowrun just to make sure thats my type of game.
